Bloomberglaw Training Review in 10 min

Bloomberglaw rocks when it comes to docket research:
How can I find the Robin Thicke’s complaint against Marvin Gaye’s family and Funkadelic rights-holders

go to bloomberglaw.com
choose Dockets
enter thicke as party name and copyright as keyword

Bloomberglaw also contains cases and statutes.

  • how to find a case: type citation in search bar (e.g., 212 F3d 477)
  • how to find a statute: type citation in search bar (e.g. 17 U.S.C. §§ 101)

YES for Bloomberg:

  1. Bloomberg offers Bcite for cases (translate= easy way to find out a case is still good law)
  2. The best way to find secondary sources is to find the case and then explanatory analysis!

NO for Bloomberg:

  1. No BCite for all statutes (translate=no easy way to find out if a statute is still good law);
  2. No case law annotations for all statutes.
